In a commanding display, the Minnesota Timberwolves secured a 105-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns, taking a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.

Jaden McDaniels led the charge with a career-best 25 points, supported by standout performances from Mike Conley (18 points) and Rudy Gobert (18 points, 9 rebounds).

Despite Anthony Edwards facing tough defense from the Suns and being limited to 15 points, the Timberwolves found scoring contributions from Conley and Gobert.

The Suns, led by Devin Booker’s 20 points and Kevin Durant’s 18, struggled once again to find their offensive rhythm against Minnesota’s suffocating defense.

Eric Gordon contributed 15 points off the bench, while Bradley Beal added 14 points, and Jusuf Nurkic had 10 points and 14 rebounds.

Game 3 in Phoenix will be crucial for both teams, as the Suns look to bounce back and the Timberwolves aim to extend their series lead and inch closer to advancing in the playoffs.
